Brandon Stokley Backtracks, Won't Sign With Redskins, According To Agent

The Washington Redskins have been busy in free agency acquiring receivers. They started off re-signing WR Santana Moss to a three-year deal, then traded for WR Jabar Gaffney and agreed to terms with WR Brandon Stokley. That made 14 receivers on the roster, which seemed like a lot. 

You can now strike that down to 13 receivers. According to Stokley's agent, he won't be signing in Washington citing "too many WR's signed."

So Stokley is apparently back on the market. This is a good lesson to remember while following these free agent signings -- they're not official until ink hits the paper which can't happen until Friday at 6:00 p.m. (ET). It's sort of like college recruiting in that players will verbally commit this week but deals don't become official until Friday night.

We'll see where Stokley goes next. He could be a decent third receiver if there aren't any other options but we're still early in this young free agency period with plenty of players available.

Washington Redskins Haul In WR Brandon Stokley, According To Report

The Washington Redskins sure do love receivers. On Wednesday alone, the Redskins have traded for WR Jabar Gaffney and agreed to terms with WR Donte Stallworth. Clearly, they're trying to improve the receivers group.

But that's not the only deal they got done on Wednesday -- WR Brandon Stokley agreed to terms, too. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, it's a one-year deal. Like all these deals being announced this week, it won't become official until Friday night.

Stokley started in his career in Baltimore in 1999 and went on to have four nondescript seasons with the Ravens. His breakout season came in 2004 when he reached the 1,000 yard receiving mark with the Indianapolis Colts. From there, he spent three years in Denver and finished the 2010 season with the Seattle Seahawks.

With all this receiver talk surrounding the Redskins, there's still one question. Who will be throwing to these guys?

Check out Hogs Haven for more on the Redskins signing all these receivers.
